|''Dr I.Q.'' - 15 December 1958|
An episode of "Dr I.Q.", a short-lived and intentionally low-budget television game show that aired on ABC. A simple "question and answer" quiz show. The host tells us at the beginning of the broadcast that it was *not* rehearsed. Features promos for other ABC series (not sure of the copyright status of these promos). Very few episodes survive of this series. (thanks to TimL2009 for providing the date)

|''Armchair Adventure'' - Misc Episode|
Not sure what this is, but it appears to be one of those syndicated filler drama TV shows, aired in an quarter-hour time-slot. Closing credits are missing. Note: Contains some dated racial stereotyping. Personally, and this is just my opinion, I find the use of real locations to provide some merit to this dated short. I hope this is public domain.

|1955 TV Commercial for Wizard Wick Deodorizer|
1955 TV commercial for a product called "Wizard Wick", designed to remove unpleasant smells like tobacco, fish, onions and cabbage from someones house. This is a very low budget commercial as it aired during daytime on a soap opera (hence, also, why it makes such emphasis on the woman of the house). Please forgive poor picture quality

|1949 episode of the TV series "Captain Video"|
Rare 1949 episode of the TV series "Captain Video and His Video Rangers". The show is about a "Space Captain" and his "Video Ranger" who must the galaxy from the evil Dr. Pauli. . The show was live, which would explain the missed cues. Most episodes are presumed lost. The series was never liked by TV critics, though proved popular with children. Later seasons had improved writing. However, as corny as the show was, it did prove influential on later series...
